    • Location: Birmingham

    • => Expense


Recruitment interviews locations
Recruitment: Interviews & Locations

  • “Speed Dating”

    • Fresh start at each table

    • Difficult to put yourself across

  • Location

    • First Choice??


  • Stp structure
    STP Structure

    • Compared with IPEM

      • Structure makes sense: learn on the job instead of cramming for exams and forgetting

    • MSc

    • Rotations


    Msc clinical sciences medical physics
    MSc Clinical Sciences (Medical Physics)

    • Location: Newcastle

      • Find short-term accommodation or commute

      • Provide accommodation? Different locations?

      • Opportunity to see another trust


    Msc clinical sciences medical physics1
    MSc Clinical Sciences (Medical Physics)

    • Medical Physics teaching excellent

      • Taught by physicists

      • Lots of hands-on learning & tutorials

    • Professional Practice needs to be relevant to physicists

      • Reflect that we have very little patient exposure

      • Taught by physicists? Not GPs


    Msc clinical sciences medical physics2
    MSc Clinical Sciences (Medical Physics)

    • Location: King’s College London

      • Told of location very last-minute

      • Find short-term accommodation or commute


    Msc clinical sciences medical physics3
    MSc Clinical Sciences (Medical Physics)

    • Teaching good

      • Taught by physicists

      • Long history of IPEM-accredited degree

      • Taught as single block

    • Syllabus very superficial

      • 1 lecture in ultrasound, 2 in MRI

      • Compared to 20+ in Leeds


    Rotations
    Rotations

    • Not taken as four 3-month blocks


    Rotations1
    Rotations

    • Imaging with Ionising Radiation (3 months)

    • Radiation Safety (3 months)

    • Radiotherapy Physics (3 months)

    • Imaging with Non-ionising Radiation (3 months)

    • Diagnostic Radiology (9 weeks)

    • Radiation Protection (6 weeks)

    • Nuclear Medicine (10 weeks)

    • Radiotherapy (12 weeks)

    • Ultrasound (5 weeks)

    • UV/Lasers (3 weeks)

    • MRI (6 weeks)


    Rotations2
    Rotations

    • Not taken as four 3-month blocks

    • First “year” takes approximately 15 months

    • Different staff to train and assess

    • Use of project-style work

    • Evidence

    • Feedback


    Competencies and assessments
    Competencies and Assessments

    • Some incredibly difficult to do

      • OCEs

      • CBDs

      • Professional Practice

    • Multiple competencies with single projects


    Specialism
    Specialism

    • Chosen towards the end of rotations

    • Incorporates MSc project


    Elective
    Elective

    • Rehabilitation engineering

    • 4-week project
